LG LDF8072ST 24-in. Built-In Stainless Steel Dishwasher Review

Featuring an impressive range of wash features and customization options, the LG LDF8072ST falls short on efficiency and scrapes by on performance.

$1,209.00

Introduction

The first thing we noticed about the LG LDF8072ST was the cluttered control panel. At first glance, it looks difficult to figure out, but for a machine that has so many features and wash options, it’s about as simple as it can be. In fact, that's probably a good assessment of this machine in general.

Aside from the wash options, the LDF8072ST is a solid machine, if expensive and a bit erratic. It also has an extremely high capacity (thanks to the cutlery rack) and is well designed. Our biggest complaint was its inconsistency, specifically in regards to efficiency and cleaning performance. For those who are concerned about cost, the $1,200 price tag may be an insurmountable barrier. And we’d have to agree.
